Our joints are typically the first areas of our bodies where we begin to feel our age, especially our hips. By the time we are “slightly older,” our hips have spent a lot time sitting at a desk, in a car, or on an airplane. They can become tight and the supporting muscles weakened due to the amount of sitting we have done over our lifetime. But there is good news – we can improve the mobility of our hips with some regular care and “maintenance!”
In this video, Pam Strand, owner of Strand Fitness, demonstrates four mobility exercises for your hips:
- Tiger Lunge
- Moonflower Squat
- Low Lunge
- Seated Figure Four Stretch
Doing these exercises every day (or at least three times a week) will help keep your hips healthy and limber.
If you would like more guidance on how to keep your hips (and other joints) healthy and strong, give Pam a call (630-653-8152) or email her at email@example.com.
With these very simple moves – done every day as a warm up to your day or as a break from your desk during the workday – you can increase the mobility of and reduce the stiffness in your hips. Be sure to only do these exercises if your hips are healthy – if you have had a hip replacement or injury, please check with your doctor or medical professional.
These moves are just the beginning to what you can do to reverse the effects of aging! Talk to your Strand Fitness personal trainer to learn more. Or, contact Pam (firstname.lastname@example.org or 630.653.8152) to schedule your complimentary, no-obligation consultation.
